IV ketamine therapy is a revolutionary therapeutic approach to treating depression and anxiety disorders. Ketamine therapy is significantly more effective than all other pharmaceuticals, is very safe, and has no side effects. It is usually life-changing.
Several scientific studies, including those conducted at Yale University and the National Institute of Mental Health, have shown that low dose intravenously administered ketamine can dramatically improve symptoms associated with depression and many anxiety disorders. Often, even when other treatments have failed to provide any relief, IV ketamine is effective.
All new patients have a series of six infusions spaced over two or three weeks. Each infusion is 40 minutes long, painless, and well tolerated. Most patients experience significant relief during the series and many remain symptom free for extended periods of time following the initial treatment protocol.
Ketamine therapy impacts both mood and anxiety disorders with positive treatment outcomes for the following diagnoses:
Depression, Chronic Depression, and Treatment Resistant Depression
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
All Anxiety Disorders
